8 more minutes...

...until the poundcake that I made is done. Let's hope this turns out. I didn't have butter or sour cream, both called for in the recipe. I improvised. Crisco and raspberry yogurt will have to do.

This could be gross.

I can promise you I am going to find out as soon as the thing is cool enough not to burn my mouth. (I am hungry and usually a poor judge of temperature. Baked goods are worth the pain, I think.)

I am obviously too tired to come up with anything interesting to write about (do I ever?) :)

So, here are some recent pictures.

(Can you tell it is my "testing" week and I just finished an all out bike followed up with the painful setting of the alarm for 4:55am for a swim tomorrow?)

Mike after "crushing play" on his P90x workout DVD. Yes, the cheeseball instructor actually encourages you to "crush play" on the DVD. Don't just push it. You'd better effing crush it. :)


One of E's favorite things to do, besides wrestling Mike, is getting tossed on the bed. Over and over and over and over...


My little morning companion. She likes to get up before I do...so I sit her cute little butt in bed and give her some toys to entertain her while I close my eyes and wait for E to come in and demand to watch "Martha Speaks" again.


Thumbs up on the poundcake that I am "crushing" right now. Mmm...

I think of you guys when I see the P90X commercials at the gym. That infomercial is hysterical. I'm curious what Mike's results will be.

Mmmm... I'm sure the P90X instructor would kick your a** for making Crisco infused pound cake for their athlete.

Angela said...

Our entire poker group (the guys anyway) are all doing the P90X...and getting pretty decent results. I'm impressed.

Hmmm, I can't imagine Crisco as a butter substitute..are you sure your taste buds aren't tired too?

Good luck on those 100's tomorrow! I think that test was the hardest I'd worked in he pool in a LONG time. Of course, tomorrow the workout calls for a bunch more 100s and the last 5 will likely have like 2 seconds rest IF I can sprint as fast as I did during that set. So I'm just sayin'... Be careful about how fast you go. ;)

Now I want pound cake...

Even I am intrigued by this PX90 stuff - b/c I am one of those that does not like to go to the gym and lift weights...so the videos and home and all of that IS intersting! I hope Mike likes it.
